    Since I switched to Pure-FTPD I noticed the users listed in /etc/ftpusers are allowed to log in, instead of blocked.

    Does blocking users require a different method with pureftpd (compared to proftpd) ?

    Thanks, I might try that. Although it seems that pam authentication is disabled by default in pure-ftpd.

    From /etc/pure-ftpd.conf

    Code:
     
    # If you want to enable PAM authentication, uncomment the following line
    
    # PAMAuthentication             yes
    
    I don't really understand why it has to be so complicated to block users in pure-ftpd.
